Passion, excess, violence, and -- of course -- the red stuff, are the elements that make up every Quentin Tarantino film. If it's made correctly, you could say the same for spaghetti and meatballs, as a new video series has brilliantly illuminated for us.
The exuberantly shot and edited series #FoodFilms, directed by YouTuber David Ma, imagines common culinary classics like spaghetti and meatballs, pancakes, waffles, and s'mores, if they were made by directors like Quentin Tarantino, Alfonso Cuarón, Michael Bay, and Wes Anderson, respectively. The results are a genius blend of fast-paced shot composition and well-timed music from the directors' films. In the Tarantino-inspired clip, chopping a tomato with a kitchen knife involves a vertical spurt of tomato juice, just as the Bride created her own geysers of blood and gore when she decapitated members of the villainous Crazy 88 assassination team in Tarantino's Kill Bill, Vol. 1.
